Mashed potatoes make Sandy's doughnuts moist and dense. Roll them in sugar or cinnamon sugar when they're done. 

If you like spiced doughnuts, feel free to add about 2 teaspoons of ground nutmeg and 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough.

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 cups ​mashed potatoes (plain)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 8 cups all-​purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons baking powder
  • vegetable oil (for deep-frying)

How to Make It

  1. In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat the sugar with the mashed potatoes until the dough is the consistency of paste. Add the eggs and beat until well blended. Add 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, milk, flour and baking powder. More flour may be added if necessary to make a soft dough.
  2. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut out with floured doughnut cutter.
  3. Heat about 2 to 3 inches of vegetable oil to 370 F on a deep-fat thermometer.
  1. Drop the doughnuts, 2 or 3 at a time, into the hot fat. Fry, turning once, for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Lift the doughuts out with a skewer or tongs and drain on paper towels.
